Just for Today lyrics by Llewellyn     

  listen on the website here

Dont tell me lies or try to impress
When there are no secrets for me to guess

Don’t impress me or dare patronise
I can see through most of your lies

Bridge

When you’re in the dark you cannot hide
Listen to your heart the truth’s inside
When the morning comes
Make that change.

Chorus

Just for today Release all worries
Just for today go slow don’t hurry
Release all your anger from within
Be kind to every living thing
Just for today hear the words I say
Just for today make that change

I can’t make you change your heart
You must learn to love yourself first

Don’t impress me or dare patronise
I can see through most of your lies

                                                 He Ain't Heavy, he's my brother    

(B. Scott and B. Russell)

The road is long, With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where,Who knows when
But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear, We'll get there
For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all
I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart
Isn't filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother..

 

The Hollies - a favourite of mine since I was a teenager, and this song sums up what being a Nurse is all about.
